It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can never resist adorable Christmas character cookies made by kids. Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is beloved by kids everywhere. They will also love these cookies and have a ton of fun creating Rudolph out of pretzels, chocolate and M&M’s.
If you ask our kids, what are holidays about, they will say present, sure. All kids will. But they will also say it’s about family. We love to involve the whole family in Christmas preparations and making cookies is definitely a part of it. It’s also their favorite part! They want to help with every step, from making the dough, decorating the cookies, packing them in pretty containers and delivering to family and friends.
This year, our daughter Audrey wanted to make a video to show kids just how easy it is to make adorable Rudolph cookies. We used our family favorite peanut butter cookies (it requires only three ingredients!) and a few simple and fun ingredients. Check it out and if you like it, give it thumbs up!
